  • vessel
  • Obstruction of blood flow through the affected vessel may lead to dysfunction of part of the brain supplied by the artery. (wikipedia.org)
  • arterial
  • After the tear, blood enters the arterial wall and forms a blood clot , thickening the artery wall and often impeding blood flow. (wikipedia.org)
  • perfusion
  • Because perfusion relates to the volume of blood flowing through the vessel, this parameter is of great importance when vertebral artery hemodynamics are investigated. (chiro.org)
  • Our results indicate that in symptom-free subjects there is no change in vertebral artery perfusion during rotation in spite of significant changes in flow velocity. (chiro.org)
  • chiropractic
  • The vertebral artery has received much attention by the chiropractic profession because of its intimate relationship with the cervical vertebrae and because of a concern of cerebrovascular complications after spinal manipulation therapy. (chiro.org)
  • hematoma
  • Dissected artery heals within a short period of time, the hematoma usually resolves within 6 months, and the outcome is mostly good. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • clot
  • When the vessel wall is torn, blood pools inside the artery and begins to clot. (wisegeek.com)
  • Once the blood inside the dissecting artery clots, there is the risk that a small fragment of the clot will break off into the bloodstream, causing an embolism by blocking a smaller vessel farther upstream in the brain. (wisegeek.com)
  • He was originally scheduled for surgery Sun morning until it was discovered that in the artery that ruptured there is a clot. (rutgers.edu)
  • Another contradiction: Ortho says the clot is not 100% occluding the artery and that that small amount of blood flow is what is keeping him alive. (rutgers.edu)
  • They put him on aspirin therapy in order to reduce the clot size, in a managed and controlled manner (as opposed to using blood thinners or clot busters) Neuro on the other hand, says the clot 100% occludes the artery, AND that the goal is not to dissolve or reduce the clot. (rutgers.edu)
  • stretch
  • 22 ] This causes the vertebral artery to stretch, kink, and narrow because it is fixed in the surrounding transverse foramina, paravertebral muscles, and fibrous ligaments. (chiro.org)
